Peace Through Superior Firepower

This slogan drives peaceniks crazy, but it has often been demonstrated to be true.  After all, no-one would have dreamed of attacking the Roman Empire at the height of its power.  It was only after they had overstretched themselves and overtaxed their population that the Huns and the Goths began to chip away and eventually take down the capital. 

A friend kindly sent this video to me; it lasts just over eight minutes but is a fascinating explanation of how some intrepid explorers managed one of the greatest journeys in the history of mankind without loss of life.
